"The Miracle of Fruit for Lymph Detox"
Dr. Robert Morse ND is a force of nature! We absolutely LOVED our time with him -- so much so, that the interview is just short of 2 hours. Please take it slowly. There is a lot to absorb here.
Some of what Dr. Morse talks about might be a stretch for us -- remember, we are bringing perspective and balance. Food is not bad. How can fruit be bad? It's nature in all it's perfection.
It's our bodies that get out of balance in an extremely toxic world. Fruit is just doing its job as a fantastic cleanser. Most of the time our "bad" reactions are due to moving things too fast or from a clogged colon that is trapping the toxins that are trying to exit. And we also must consider our weakened kidney/adrenal function.
Dr. Morse's treatment of eating "just fruit" is designed to bring the body back out of a bad situation and MUST be done under the care of a health professional -- and with complimentary treatments alongside (i.e. strong adrenal support, candida, de-worming etc). He also talks about using this "treatment" for only a short time to "clean up" and then go back to whatever diet you'd like -- fix first then go back.
We bring up our personal health issues in this interview as an example in the hopes that it relates to some of your symptoms (thyroid, pain, migraines, gut issues, underweight, cravings etc). It's the best way we know how to bring this information and make it relevant.
This interview was totally spontaneous (as most of them are.) We had never met Dr. Morse. We feel honored to have spent time with him. He has a heart of gold.
P.S... Love how close he got to the screen to be close with us without his glasses.
P.P.S... We (Dana and Brent) will be trying a fruit fast at some point -- starting with just one day (or at least half!) : )
"The Return to Self: Letting Go of Illness"
I'd like to introduce you to my dear friend Michael Vladeck.
At the young age of 23 he was diagnosed with terminal cancer -- lymphoma -- and 75% of his body was tumor ridden.
Michael's journey back to health was a deeply and profoundly spiritual one. When diagnosed, he realized:
"I will live or die, but either way, I need to heal"
Like Michael, we look at Lyme and other illnesses as a great wake up call to heal our lives and planet. And for some of us, illness can actually be the armor that we were never able to give ourselves.
Or (as with many of us sensitive beings) having an illness has led us to our tribe and sheltered us of from the destructive energies of the "rat race".
Maybe we never felt like we fit here. Dr. Klinghardt says that it's mostly the creative types that get this illness because "they feel" the world and all of it's suffering.
And, Klinghardt also says there are multiple layers to get through to recover from Lyme. One of those very buried (subconscious) layers is called "secondary gain."
It's a very difficult thing to talk about, and yet so important. We feel that Michael -- having lived through it -- is qualified to discuss this topic.
Please listen carefully. Maybe watch it a few times. Stop and start. Listen. Take what feels right in the moment and leave the rest. This is a story of friends and the possibilities in healing.
Everyone is different and we aren't prescribing what is true for you -- just sharing our story in hopes that you may find a reflection within it that brings you peace.
PS. We are so thrilled to have Michael join us for a "Huddles" call Monday, September 21st @ 2 PM Pacific / 5 PM Eastern.
This will be a special treat to have Michael's presence as he is booked a year in advance for private sessions.
